Proper nutrition for healthy teeth

Proper nutrition is essential especially for optimal health of the whole organism, but not all realize that the right diet gives us a lot of additional bonuses: slim figure, beautiful skin and everything else healthy teeth and gums.

SAYS Igor Lemberg, candidate of medical Sciences, dentist the Ideal diet for healthy teeth, according to dentists, must have the following. It is very important to drink plenty of pure non-carbonated drinking water 1.5-2 liters a day, with tea, coffee, juices, contrary to popular belief, this rule does not count. Of water the body receives fluoride, which is essential for building strong enamel and prevent tooth decay. Also by drinking clean water we washed off the remains of food, which is especially important after the consumption of easily digestible carbohydrates, such as sweets. Water, among other things, is one of the best tools for weight loss. It gives us energy and cleanses the body of toxins and harmful substances.

To keep our teeth strong and healthy, able to resist tooth decay, the daily diet must contain foods rich in calcium, phosphorus and fluorine: dairy products, nuts, legumes, cereals and seafood. Don't forget about fresh vegetables and fruits, especially hard: besides the fact that they are rich in fiber necessary for a healthy diet, they also stimulate the flow of saliva, which washes away plaque and neutralizes acids. And, of course, the diet should include foods rich in vitamins. They are important not only for gum health but also for General immunity: green vegetables, fruits, berries, herbs. For teeth and gums especially useful for those which contain vitamins a, C, D: eggs, fish, spinach, whole grains, poultry, dried fruits. Consumption of sweet and starchy products, in addition to what spoils the figure, leads to the destruction of the enamel, and eventually to the development of caries and gum disease: due to the easily digestible Sugars contained in them are metabolized by bacteria into acids that destroy tooth enamel. On dental health was also negatively affected by an unbalanced diet, which can lead to the development of caries, inflammation and even tooth loss. It is important in this case to compensate for the deficiency of vitamins and minerals in the daily diet due to vitamin-mineral complexes. They should contain vitamin D (strengthening teeth), vitamin a (strengthens gums), vitamin C (affects blood circulation), vitamins (affect the state of the mucosa), and also calcium, fluorine and phosphorus.

The use of citrus due to the high content of vitamin C, is good for the body, however, due to the large amount of citric acid they can cause tooth sensitivity, so the juices to protect the teeth better to drink through a straw, and after the fruits, such as bananas or grapes, it is desirable to rinse your mouth ftoridsoderzhaschie conditioner.
